Board Members: Keith was fantastic! Whatever he charged us was worth every penny and more! I’ve been to many, many fundraising events and Keith absolutely stands out. Gala Committee Leaders: If we haven’t already secured him again for next year, we should get on that now! Keith is such a great guy and outstanding at what he does! Director of Development Keith was an absolute pleasure to work with. He is the consummate professional and is not only an outstanding auctioneer the night of the event, but he provides thought leadership, strategic counsel, and invaluable partnership to the table before, during, and after the actual event. During the actual auction activity of the evening, Keith reads the audience perfectly, keeps the energy level up, jumps into the audience at the best times and pulls back at the best times, and helps foster an overall evergy and vibe of fun and mission-driven support. Plus, he’s a great guy and a ton of fun to work with. I wholeheartedly recommend Keith and look forward to growing the success of our annual Gala with him, as we head into year two of collaborating. Head of School We have never worked with a Gala auctioneer like Keith. He was absolutely instrumental in making this year’s Gala an unprecedented success. I’m looking forward to working with him and his terrific team again. Not only is he great at his job, but it is obvious he genuinely cares about our mission and cause and takes it to heart. Keith wants to make the evening a terrific success in experience and fundraising for everyone.
